Sections of Interstate 10 in the Phoenix area will be closed or restricted during overnight hours this week for work to install new traffic-flow sensors. The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends drivers allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while the following I-10 closures are in place:
- Eastbound Interstate 10 closed at US 60 (Superstition Freeway) from 10 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, March 28, for traffic-flow sensor installation. DETOUR: Traffic will detour to eastbound US 60.

North- and southbound I-17 ramps to westbound I-10 closed. Westbound I-10 on-ramps at Seventh Street and Seventh Avenue also closed. DETOUR: Consider exiting ahead of closure and using westbound alternate routes, including Thomas and McDowell roads or Van Buren Street to 27th Avenue. Drivers can use westbound I-10 on-ramp at 27th Avenue.
- Eastbound Interstate 10 closed at 27th Avenue (near I-17) from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday, March 30, for traffic-flow sensor installation. Eastbound I-10 on-ramps at 43rd and 35th avenues also closed. DETOUR: Consider exiting ahead of closure and using eastbound alternate routes, including McDowell Road or Van Buren Street, to 19th Avenue. Drivers can use eastbound I-10 on-ramp at 19th Avenue.
Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
